Munch Mum Kate Day

A beautiful Munch family

Today I would like to re-introduce you to one of our favourite Munch Mums, Kate Day. She has been writing for us for quite some time, and in fact we have interviewed her before here, but lots has been happening in our world, and hers so time for a catch up. When she’s not busy racing around after her two children she blogs about feeding her family fresh, tasty, wholesome food, filled with flavour. If you want Kate to share her recipes and hints and tips for feeding a family with you follow her on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.


What does Kate Day have to say?

Q.) Can you tell us a bit about yourself?

I’m a wife, mum and primary school teacher by training. I’m at home full time at the moment with my two amazing children and loving watching them grow and develop. I’m a Brit, married to a Brit but living in Sydney after 6 wonderful years in sunny, windy Wellington.

Q.) What inspired you to start blogging?

Kate Day: I started Freddie’s Food as a creative outlet and excuse to spend a bit more time in the kitchen! I also started because I was having a tricky time getting my oldest child Freddie to eat solids – he had simply refused to eat off a spoon. The more parents I chatted to the more obvious it became that lots of mums and dads find weaning their babies stressful and that these stresses can continue on into the toddler years and childhood for lots of parents. So I wanted to share what I have learned as a mum along the way to make mealtimes as fun and stress free as possible as well as some delicious and healthy recipes for the whole family.

Q.) What do you find most rewarding about blogging?

Kate Day: I love receiving comments and questions from readers. It is amazing to know that I have helped another mum or dad feed their child.

Q.) How would someone describe your blogging style?

Kate Day: My posts are real life posts where I share my personnel

experiences and thoughts. I hope my posts are informative but also conversational and that I give my readers a bit of reassurance that fussy eating doesn’t have to be forever and that happy family meals are possible!

Q.) What is your favourite topic to blog about?

Kate Day: My favourite topic is blogging about family food. I really believe that the way to having healthy eaters is to eat as a family so I love sharing recipes the whole family can enjoy

Q.) Everyone has a favourite or least favorite post. Name yours and why?

Kate Day: Date coconut and tahini balls is one of my favourite posts because whenever I make them for friends I get asked for the recipe.

Q.) What’s the best thing a blogger can give to their readers?

Kate Day: I think the best bloggers and the blogs I follow are honest and personalise their posts giving real life on a page with all it’s cracks and flaws, stresses, delights and joys!

Q.) What’s the best thing a reader can give a blogger????

Kate Day: Feedback and comments on a post is the most wonderful thing! It’s great to know that someone is reading your posts and enjoying them or finding the helpful. I also love it when readers email me with questions and I can write a post for them specifically

Q.) How do you spend your time when you aren’t working on your blog?

Kate Day:When I’m not blogging which is not as much as I would like to at the best of times. I’m trying to keep up with a climbing, running toddler and an energetic three year old! As a family we’ve been trying to get to know more of Sydney and make the most of the sunny climate here spending time on the beach and in playparks. On those rare quite moments of ‘me’ time I love curling up with a good novel, going for a run or nipping to the gym.

Q.) Where can we follow you?

Kate Day: You can follow me at Freddie’s Food and also on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram
